Application Status

Receipt of Application Materials

Log into your online application to see which of your letters of recommendation, transcripts, and exam scores have been received by our Graduate Admissions office. Please allow us several days to record receipt of documents that arrive in the mail. We regret that application materials cannot be returned or transferred to another institution.

Interviews

Applicants in the U.S. and Canada who are considered for admission will be invited for all-expenses paid on-campus interviews taking place in February. The interview schedule for this year is as follows: 

February 6th & 7th: MCGD and CBB Tracks

February 13th & 14th: Microbiology and BBSB Tracks

February 20th & 21st: MCGD and MMPP Tracks

February 27th & 28th: Neuroscience Track

Invitations to attend our recruiting weekends will be made by phone or email beginning in early January. International applicants who are considered for admission will be interviewed by phone in February and March.

Special note to Chinese applicants: We will be traveling to China in early December to interview applicants for our CSC-Yale World Scholars Program. We will also interview a limited number of other Chinese applicants. If you wish to be considered for an in-person interview, you will need to submit your application by November 7, 2014.

Notification of Decisions

Admissions decisions are communicated in written form by the Graduate School, not by the BBS Program. Only communications sent directly from the Graduate School may be considered official notifications of admission or of financial aid decisions. Depending on the BBS Track to which you applied, decisions will arrive any time between January and March.
